Automatic Sonar Sweep

Is this new? Since Kriegsmarine, perhaps? I had not noticed it before now, while working on a sea battle scenario. Nice feature.

I'm reasonably sure that was in the very first release :)

We didn't want to force you to ping sonars manually for every DD that hasn't moved/attacked yet at the end of a turn (cos there is no reason NOT to).

Wow. Honestly, that is the first time that I ever noticed my own sonar-equipped ships would do this automatically if i just left them alone for a turn. I was too busy moving them every turn! Or pinging away manually. :oops:

Should there be a sound and animation during automatic sonar sweep at the end of the turn? I do not have neither sound, nor animation, so I assumed it doesn't work...

I didn't even have the tutorial message on this :)

Do you have animation and sound during automatic sweep? I leave my destroyers idle for eternity, and there is no automatic sonar sweep - at least neither animation, nor sound

Yes, I have my doubts as well but I trust in what adherbal said.

So I guess it's done, just without animation. Thanks :)

Although, confirmation from adherbal that it's done, just without any indication, would be nice...

Yes the sound & visual effect is only played when manually pinging.
